This second room room is by interior designer Sara Story and was shown at the 2008 Orchard Hill Show House. It was featured just recently in the April 2009 Traditional Home. The use of orange to create the feel of sunset with this gorgeous hand painted Chinoiserie wallpaper, instead of the more expected blue Chinoiserie was inspired. Notice too how the black really pops against the orange.
This stunning room is from the Greystone Show House and was created by interior designer James Lumsden in this gentleman's bedroom. I love the orange walls and the mix of French Moderne, Italian, and English with the bold graphics. Notice the use of red and blue accents.
If you are looking for an elegant orange paint color, check out Farrow & Ball Orangery-a typical 18th century terra cotta color used much in orangeries.
